I Am Not Your Negro

I Am Not Your Negro

A powerful and profound documentary, I Am Not Your Negro is based on writer/activist James Baldwin’s 1979 book proposal to write about three of his close friends: assassinated civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Although Baldwin never wrote more than 30 pages of the manuscript, the film uses the author’s own words (including letters, televised interviews, etc.) to imagine what such an exploration of race would look like. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, the documentary includes contemporary examples of racial tensions in the United States as well as archival footage.
